    I have had some shoulder soreness/pain. About a year ago I went to the doctor and he told me it was tendonitis...never went back due to school. Anyways....I was watching a video over in Bodybuilding.com and some IFBB guy said the doctor told him to keep his bicep warmed up inorder to not hurt your shoulders. This is inbetween chest and shoulder routines. so to do a simple bicep superset while working chest.

    What do you think?

    The guy said it was because the Bicep muscle runs all the way into between the middle of your shoulder.. I guess it makes sense...since even when working my triceps I feel pressure in my shoulders.

    yep internal and external rotations are best utilized on a cable machine or with bands IMO

    my doctor recently recommended those with cables...since load is not constant with the barbells. I also have some good stretches with a foam roller that work really really well, but people will look at you funny. I thought I had shoulder problems, but it turned out to be a pectoral minor.

    Its really nice to see a doctor who doesn't say, "why are you weight training, you should stop." Mine is not a lifter, but he does triathalon stuffs.
